“Incorporating allTRA is expected to deliver distinct performance benefits for Société Générale CIB and in turn to our customers, while further demonstrating the numerous business advantages and highly advanced approach we take,” said Florence Escaffre, global head for trade commodity finance operations of SocGen CIB. “We are delighted with the performance of allTRA and have long recognised the value that Surecomp delivers to the industry. Being a driving force in the allTRA product roadmap is key.”
